Your Preference | Our Guidance
A wine that is high quality doesn’t necessarily mean that you will enjoy it. It is the personal taste that is more relevant. A good wine is one that you will have great pleasure in drinking.
If you know what you like, that’s great. However, if you need some guidance then please do not hesitate in contacting us. Our clients benefit from our knowledge, experience and expertise.
What The Experts Look For
Experts will judge the quality of a wine on a number of factors, which include:
Complexity: A wine that keeps revealing different things about itself, revealing new flavours and aromas. Having complexity is usually considered better quality.
Finish: The impression it leaves in your mouth after you have swallowed. In a good wine, you can still perceive it’s flavours such as fruitiness or spiciness.
Balance: A balanced wine is when nothing sticks out as you taste it, such as harsh tannin or too much sweetness.
Length: Length is a sure sign of high quality. Many standard wines are very up front on the palate. These make a big impression as soon as you taste them but fall short. Excess tannin or high alcohol can be to blame. You’ll be able to taste a good quality wine across the full length of your tongue.
Depth: Depth is when it does not taste flat or one dimensional in your mouth.
